The ARRS Annual Meeting will feature more than 150 sessions and 500 electronic exhibits on radiology
Honolulu, May 1, 2019 – The Hawai‘i Convention Center is welcoming the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) annual scientific and educational meeting from May 5-10, 2019. Among the world’s premier conferences for radiology professionals, the ARRS Annual Meeting will draw nearly 2,500 participants from 32 countries, generating an estimated $9.4 million in statewide visitor spending. In total, more than 3,000 will participate in the meeting, including virtual registrants from around the globe.
The multi-track conference will feature more than 150 sessions, 200 Continuing Medical Education (CME) opportunities, and over 500 electronic exhibits. Courses will focus on topics including multispecialty imaging and how to avoid misdiagnosis.
The 2019 ARRS Global Exchange featuring Asia will also take place at the meeting. The exchange will feature a special two-part course, “Comparing and Contrasting the Role of Imaging in Common Cancers,” in which international experts will discuss the role of imaging in screening, diagnosis, and surveillance of the most common cancers — liver, gastric, colon, prostate, and lung — across Global Exchange countries.
“The ARRS Annual Meeting offers an abundance of learning and networking opportunities,” said ARRS President Philip Costello, MD. “In addition to instructional courses, hundreds of scientific paper presentations will highlight groundbreaking industry advancements and research.”
ARRS, founded in 1900, is the first and oldest radiology society in the United States. The society has been a forum for progress in radiology since shortly after the discovery of the X-ray and is dedicated to the goal of the advancement of medicine through the science of radiology and its allied sciences. Participants will be able to choose from a radiology review track with 11 subspecialties, such as cardiac imaging and ultrasounds, and a resident track for in-training radiologists. There will also be courses for radiology leadership and management.
“ARRS is known for bringing together the industry’s top educational, research and networking opportunities for radiologists, and we are pleased to bring this major medical gathering to Hawai‘i for the first time,” said Teri Orton, general manager, Hawai‘i Convention Center, managed by AEG Facilities.
For added flexibility and educational value, registrants of the meeting can participate in person and access on demand session recordings and earn credit.
Other major medical and scientific meetings at the Center this year will include the National Medical Association’s 2019 Annual Convention & Scientific Assembly and the 15th International Congress of Toxicology in July; OceanObs’19 in September; and the Health Span Hawaii Summit in November. In February, the Center hosted the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference, and in March, the Society of Gynecologic Oncology held its 50th Annual Meeting at the Center.
Founded in 1900, ARRS is the first and oldest radiology society in the United States, and is an international forum for progress in radiology.
